Welcome to Lion’s Roar Dharma Center
Buddhist teachings at Lion’s Roar are especially designed for people with daily work, school and family commitments. As 21st Century Buddhists we promote and share basic human values and work through challenges and relationships openly. We live the concepts of compassion, tolerance, self-discipline and interdependence in order to achieve happiness and overcome suffering. We want to help people make the Lion Roar. We believe it is possible through practice and realization, no matter what one’s life circumstances. We aim to create an open and just society for everyone.
OUR DREAM HAS COME TRUE — THANK YOU EVERYONE!
Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has contributed to our dream of a new Dharma Center by offering funds, practices and prayers! Our offer on the perfect home for our Dharma Center has been accepted and we reached our fund raising goal of $250,000 for the down payment! We are truly grateful for the outpouring of support! We are moving forward with the purchase of the property and need additional funds to make the property ADA compliant and for other repairs that may be required. To help us fund these needs, please click on www.lionsroardharmacenter.org/donate/.
A very special poem expresses our joy:
We live in our teachers’ hearts, and we feel their love. A love so big, it can not be contained. Now their love is manifesting in outer form – a temple. Wide open doors and windows all around. May all beings be happy, may all beings be free.
